Writing in 三個語言 en même temps

Je suis vraiment bored out of my mind en ce moment, du coup j'ai décidé de 寫一篇文章 in three languages pour m'amuser. L'école vient de se terminer for us, ce qui veut dire it's personal project 的工作時間, but au lieu de travailler I've been picking up 法語 again en espérant que I'll be able to relearn some 早已忘掉的詞彙 . Et quand I am not doing that I'm 懶在床上, doing maths, or endlessly watching des vidéos on YouTube du lever au coucher du soleil - quelle vie productive! I'll need to améliorer my skills en 時間管理…Read more …

Term One Design Project Reflection

Below is an image of my completed graphic novel contribution: After completing this project, I’ve learned that Illustrator can be an extremely powerful and versatile tool, not only for creating a graphic novel panel sequence but also for other purposes, which I am sure to experience in the imminent design cycle (infographic creation). I’ve also learned about different types of organisation tools, such as the Gantt chart, which will definitely help me in future projects and also in time management. This is one of my areas for improvement, not only in design but…Read more …

English: Final Thoughts

English class this year was a blast. I enjoyed the Our World activity the most because it kept me interested, and at the same time exposed me to new concepts. I've never seen so many people so engaged in a simulation activity -- at some points I even forgot that Our World was merely just a game! Everyone was extremely intrigued and many devoted a lot of time to the project. Countless rivalries were made, and even more TV shows were broadcast! For the uninitiated, Our World is a stock market simulation game.…Read more …

English: Short Story Reflection

After reading many short stories of other authors, it was finally time to write my own short story. I had to keep the elements of a short story in mind while I wrote, and I felt that I didn't spend enough time referring back to other stories to identify room for improvement. Here, I will write a reflection describing my thoughts and feelings about this project. One of the things I found difficult was making sure that the plot itself was more descriptive than the exposition, or the conclusion. When writing this story,…Read more …

寫新詩:自評與反思

以下是我的新詩作品《自行車》與它的寫作說明。 創作《自行車》一詩之前,我學習了冰心的《紙船--寄母親》、艾青的《綠》、艾青的《太陽的話》與鄒荻帆的《小小的海鷗》。這幾位作家的新詩裡利用的修辭手法與寫作手法多不勝數,很值得參考參考。尤其是《小小的海鷗》中用到的複疊修辭法影響到了我的作品。我仔細研究了這四首詩用到的修辭手法和寫作手法後才開始了自己的創作。 《自行車》一詩利用了借物說明的寫作手法把生命之路比喻成騎自行車, 讓讀者親自了解到人生中將會遇到的一切。詩中借用了車道上的上坡、下坡、紅綠燈與十字路口來說明與描述生活中的困難、選擇和障礙。 我對自己的創作與寫作說明比較滿意。我用到的修辭手法種類雖然數量不多,但是我認為每一個修辭都起到了作用--尤其是複疊。詩中一到四小節第一句是重複的;複疊成功地加強了詩歌的節奏感和音樂美,也給讀者留下了深刻的印象。另外,我比較喜歡這次創作的主題--生命之路。生命是一個很廣大、深奧的主題;可是,把生命比喻成騎自行車可以把很具體、深奧的主題變得簡單、淺顯、有趣。 如果我可以重寫本詩,我會作出的更改包括: 運用更多成語與四字詞語; 考慮採用押韻的寫作手法,加強詩歌的節奏感和音樂美; 考慮利用更多修辭手法,例如呼告、對偶、擬人等等,增強作品的感染力; 描寫生命中的成功與失敗。 以上的改進可以讓我的新詩變得更完善。Read more …
